compost

From The Lexicon of Sustainability:

WHY COMPOST?
1. Adds nutrients back into the soil which plants utilize for 2-3 years
2. Increases organic matter and promotes beneficial organisms
3. Improves soil structure eroded by wind, water + tilling
4. Reduces dependence on petroleum-based fertilizers
5. Compost, along with cover crops rotation filter strips + nutrient and water management programs all work together to build soil health
